Second Term for Tompolo

I recall now that moment of frenzy in the year 2015 when General Muhammadu Buhari returned to power, this time, as a civilian head of government. The wild jubilation, the pump and the bravado by party men and women as well as supporters across the land that the saviour had come. The man many expected

Where Are The Winning Mates?

In the months of May and June, Nigerians temporarily dropped the whining over the style of governance of President Muhammadu Buhari and the parlous state of the economy to cheer the political parties. They wanted the parties to give us candidates who can change the narrative. This is so we can have competitive choices to

Our Husband, The Abuser!

You remember that time we became the butt of jokes in the sub-region? The time people offshore saw affliction in our new found head, and made that their business; howling that our beloved leader was spent? It would not have warranted a recall, if at home we were not made to pay for the unkind

The Chrisland Saga: A Case for the Minors

It is a welcome development that the Lagos State government and the police are taking more than a passing interest in the unfortunate sex scandal involving some pupils of Chrisland School, Lagos. The debate so far has centered on whether the girl in the midst of the affected pupils was raped or not. That, though

The Man Who Lives in a Bubble

JUNE 12 is supposed to symbolize and celebrate Nigeria’s third political experiment with democracy. But last Saturday, the essence of that special day was roundly desecrated. The police and other security agents were deployed in huge numbers to disrupt peaceful rallies all over the country. People were blatantly denied their fundamental right to freely assemble

The Twitter Storm and Lai's Tantrums

The Twitter Storm and Lai’s Tantrums

The federal government has declared war on the people. It has done so to remind us all that, even if it can’t provide effective governance, it still has enormous power to terrorize us. And it’ll do so without apologies to no one. The declaration of the war flowed directly from its obsession with social media
